Description:

Competency Area: Individual Assessment & Intervention Strategies
Restricted to ASD Certificate students.
Prerequisite: Satisfactory completion of the first semester ASD certificate coursework or with permission of the Program Director.

The advanced strand for Speech Language Pathologists will develop a greater knowledge base in the three deficit areas of Theory of Mind, Central Coherence, and Executive Function. The areas of interactive perspective taking, self-advocacy and disclosure, and compensatory strategies for ?showing what you know? will be explored. Both the paralinguistic aspects and nonverbal aspects of communicative events will be developed as part of the treatment paradigm in teaching these contextually based communication skills. Treatment models for various contexts will be learned and practiced to enhance clinical skills. Students will lead on-campus pragmatic language groups with children and young adults to practice applications.
